Hitler's Thirty Days to Power: January 1933 by Henry Ashby Turner, Jr. (£23.00)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780747530046]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Every one has heard of Hitler. Most know he was the dictator of Germany who caused the Second World War and the slaughter of millions of Jews. But how Hider got power is another matter. Few understand the way in which his dictatorship came about. Because Germany was a republic when Hitler became chancellor, many assume that he was democratically elected by a majority of the German people. Such was not, however, the case. His rise to power was far more complicated and, above all, more chancy. It was, in fact, a very near thing that could have been thwarted at numerous points. Much of Hitler’s story has been ably recounted in previous books, but no one has yet subjected to thorough scrutiny the dramatic events of the crucial month of January 1933, at the end of which Hitler became head of the German government. To tell that story is the task of this book.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". [XII] 255 pages.

The Pope's Maestro by Sir Gilbert Levine (£19.00)Publisher: Jossey-Bass — 2010Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780470490655]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Includes the unopened CD-Rom to the rear pastedown. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “The Pope’s Maestro tells the inspirational story of a most improbable friendship between the American conductor Sir Gilbert Levine and His Holiness Pope John Paul II. Together they collaborated closely, over a period of more than seventeen years, using music to heal centuries-old religious wounds.

Maestro Levine created and conducted a series of ground-breaking, internationally broadcast concerts. These musical events brought artistic form to Pope John Paul II’s fervent wish to forge an historic bridge first between the Roman Catholic Church and the Jewish people, and then, after 9/11, with the Muslim world as well. These efforts culminated in the Papal Concert to Commemorate the Holocaust in 1994 and the Papal Concert of Reconciliation in 2004.

During his years as Music Director of the Krakow Philharmonic, Sir Gilbert had an insider’s view of Eastern Europe’s inexorable journey from Communism to freedom. And in the years following, he experienced the world of Pope John Paul in a way few lay people, and even fewer Jews, have ever been honored to do. That work, paradoxically enough, deepened Sir Gilbert’s own Jewish belief and practice.

The Pope’s Maestro tells the story of the compelling musical and spiritual journey of two men of different faiths who found in music the power to foster peace and unity in a profoundly divided world.”

Warworks: Women, Photography and the Iconography of War by Val Williams (£18.00)Publisher: London: Virago Press Limited — 1994Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1853815918]Condition: Very Good. Light creasing to the bottom corner of the upper wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, 11th January - 19th March 1995. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “One of Britain’s most noted photographic curators and historians, Val Williams explores the myriad ways in which women photographers have used war to express major issues in contemporary art and society. In addressing collective memory, gender, sexuality and mass communication, she removes war photography from its niche as reportage and places it as a central channel for the contemporary imagination.

The Holocaust is looked at very differently in the works of Lee Miller and Rachel Lichtenstein; parody is present in Martha Rosler’s Bringing the War Home (House Beautiful) and in Anna Fox’s Weekend Wargames ; Deborah Blight’s Battlefield Panoramas explore war as lost memories; Barbara Alper’s Gulf Channel examines the new reporters, satellite TV; and Moira Mclver looks at men dressed for conflict. The photographs and accompanying essays provide a challenging dimension to photographic and cultural history. “

Modern Warfare 1851-Present by H. W. [Hannsjoachim Wolfgang] Koch (£16.00)Publisher: Bison Books — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0861241282]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a diagonal crease to the bottom corner of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Colour Drawings; Maps;

From the cover: “The third and final volume of the trilogy beginning with Medieval Warfare, and continuing with The Rise of Modern Warfare, is Modern Warfare 1815-Present by H W Koch. Medieval Warfare covered the development of weapons, strategy and tactics from the Fall of the Roman Empire to the Thirty Years’ War. The second volume, The Rise of Modern Warfare, covered the period from the end of the Thirty Years’ War in 1648 to the wars of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars. This volume carries the story forward from the Battle of Waterloo and the Congress of Vienna in 1815, through the development of heavy artillery, rapid-fire weapons, such as the machine gun, and other advances of the nineteenth century which presaged the wars of attrition such as World War I through World War II to the present day.

The year-long siege of Sebastopol during the Crimean War and the Siege of Vicksburg during the American Civil War, as well as the Virginia campaigns of Robert E Lee, were precursors of modern total warfare to a far greater extent than Britain’s easy colonial victories in India and Africa fought during the same period. The rapid victories of the Prussian armies of von Moltke over Austria at Koniggratz in 1866 and the French at Sedan in 1870 were the results of a modern massed army fighting against traditional professional armies not greatly advanced from their eighteenth century counterparts. The introduction of the needle gun, the Maxim gun and the Lee-Enfield rifle, combined with the evolution of the tank as a replacement for armoured cavalry were developments bound to change the nature of warfare in the twentieth century.

The war of attrition fought by Britain in South Africa, including the long sieges of Ladysmith and Mafeking, as well as the six-month long siege of Port Arthur during the Russo-Japanese War were portents of a new age in warfare for the warlords of Europe who were to launch World War I. They hoped for a war that would end in weeks. Millions of combatants and civilians alike were slaughtered in the four-year-long war of attrition in Europe between 1914 and 1918. The introduction of aerial warfare and naval blockades, which could starve a nation into submission, made twentieth century warfare unlike any previously encountered. By the time of World War II, whole nations, not merely their armies, found themselves locked in deadly combat for years until one side was worn down into helpless impotence. No one in Europe could escape the effect of the total war that was waged from 1939 to 1945.

The horrendous results of the holocaust which caused the deaths of tens of millions altered the character of warfare once again after World War II. The entire progression from “wars of gentlemen” through total war to the post-1945 age of limited war, including Korea, Algeria and Vietnam, as well as the four wars in the Middle East is described. The limited wars of the post-1945 period were perhaps the precursors of a new, even more terrible form of total conflict should a third world war ever occur.

Illustrated by hundreds of contemporary paintings, action photographs in both color and monochrome, and replete with technical drawings, maps and cutaway illustrations of the relevant weapons as well as special drawings of the uniforms of the period. Modern Warfare should become a classic and essential reading in the library of anyone interested in modern militarv historv.”

A Garden of Eden in Hell: The Life of Alice Herz-Sommer by Melissa Mu¨ller & Reinhard Piechocki (£13.50)Publisher: London: Macmillan — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0230528023]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Musical scores; Portrait to the frontispiece; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Alice Herz-Sommer was born in 1903 in Prague, the Prague of the Hapsburgs and of Franz Kafka, a family friend. Musically very gifted, by her mid-teens Alice was one of the best-known pianists in Prague. But as the Nazis swept across Europe, her comfortable, bourgeois world began to crumble around her, as anti-Jewish feeling not only intensified but was legitimised.

In 1942, Alice’s mother was deported. Desperately unhappy, she resolved to learn Chopin’s 24 Etudes — the most technically demanding piano pieces she knew — and the complex but beautiful music saved her sanity. A year later, she, too — together with her husband and their six-year-old son — was deported to a concentration camp. But even in Theresienstadt, music was her salvation and in the course of more than a hundred concerts she gave her fellow-prisoners hope in a world of pain and death.

This is her remarkable story, but it is also the story of a mother’s struggle to create a happy childhood for her beloved only son in the midst of atrocity and barbarism. Of 15,000 children sent to the camp, Raphael was one of the 130 who survived. Today, Alice Herz-Sommer lives in London and she still plays the piano every day.”

Learning to Glow: A Nuclear Reader by Edited by John Bradley (£13.00)Publisher: University of Arizona Press — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0816519560]Condition: Good+. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Atomic energy has been cloaked in secrecy by government, industry, and the military, but for many Americans the effects of radiation have been less than secret. Just ask the radium workers in Ottawa, Illinois, the “downwinders” of Utah, or unsuspecting veterans of the Gulf War. When told from the perspective of ordinary people, nuclear history takes on a much different tone from that of the tranquil voices of authority who always told us we had nothing to fear. In Learning to Glow, writers such as Scott Russell Sanders, Terry Tempest Williams, and Barbara Kingsolver reveal the psychic and emotional fallout of the Cold War and of subsequent developments in nuclear science. Here are stories of and by ordinary people who have suffered the consequences of the decisions made by those in power — stories that will challenge readers to re-examine their preconceptions about the way we deal with issues of nuclear arms and radioactive waste.”Notes: Size: 9" x 6". 317 pages.

Human Nature: Fact and Fiction by Edited by Robin Headlam Wells & Johnjoe McFadden (£11.50)Publisher: Continuum — 2006Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0826485464]Condition: Near Fine.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “What do we mean by ‘human nature’? Is there a genetically determined core of humanity that unites us all as members of a single species? Or is the thing we call human nature a social construct? And how do we explain the mystery of human creativity? Do great writers have an intuitive grasp of what makes human beings tick, or are they merely the mouthpiece of contemporary culture? It has been claimed that ‘the greatest enterprise of the mind has always been and always will be the attempted linkage of the sciences and humanities’ (Edward O. Wilson). This ground-breaking book marks the beginning of a new dialogue between the two. Rather than focusing on the division between what C.P. Snow called ‘the two cultures’, it shows that the sciences and humanities have much to learn from each other. Points of disagreement remain. Yet there is in this volume a genuine attempt to bridge the gulf that has traditionally separated the sciences and humanities and to reach a better understanding of what it means to be human. Human Nature — Fact and Fiction is a major new contribution to the debate on human nature, set to be required reading for anyone with a background in either the arts or the sciences who is interested in understanding what defines us as human beings — in what we are, and why.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by A.

When he disappears on a mission to France, she follows him as a British secret courier, sent over to help support the Resistance. Having failed to find Gregory, she decides to stay on to do what she can for the France she has loved since childhood. She and the reader are drawn ever deeper into the lives of assimilated French Jews — the children Andre and Jacob whose parents have already been sent to the death camps, and the Levades, father and son. Though ultimately powerless to help, Charlotte nevertheless learns a far deeper understanding of herself and her own family through them.”Tags: extraordinary underground occupation resistance operations historical redemptive 1939-1945 movements microcosm holocaust collusion narrative occupied scottish shocking altruism stories england fiction courage english history romance british special missing general french modern second france action german airman woman agony black local women world years group texts young nazi chie love gone and its the who war has

Wartime Courage: Stories of Extraordinary Courage by Ordinary People in World War Two by Gordon Brown (£9.50)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747596077]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly.Description: From the cover: “In these eleven stories of courage in the Second World War, Prime Minister Gordon Brown pays tribute to the heroism of that great generation of British men and women who took up arms against tyranny and overcame it. Some are accounts of decisive action taken in the searing heat of battle: early in the war Lieutenant Richard Stannard, RNR, showed steely calm and ingenuity during the retreat from Norway in 1940, winning a VC; while on D-Day, Company Sergeant Major Hollis of the Green Howards won his by storming a pillbox alone, paving the way for a crucial advance to higher ground. Other stories tell of great danger faced again and again: Graham Hayes and Geoffrey Appleyard of the Small Scale Raiding Force (forerunner of the SBS) carried out daring and innovative actions over many months off Africa and along the Normandy coast; while John Bridge, a physics teacher turned mine- and bomb-disposal officer, repeatedly practised his nerve-racking skills for six years, always aware that there were no second chances if things went wrong. Behind enemy lines the sangfroid and sheer endurance of clandestine operatives like Major Hugh Seagrim in occupied Burma and Violette Szabo in occupied France showed a daunting, almost mysterious form of courage; and on the home front two railwaymen risked their lives to save a small country town from devastation when their ammunition train caught fire.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

She was eight years old. But far from being cared for, Judith found herself in a savage and terrifying institution where physical, emotional and sexual abuse were the daily norm and the children’s lives were reduced to stark survival. As the months became years and no word came from her mother, she sought comfort from the girls around her, especially the bright, angel-voiced Frances. When a tragic accident robbed Judith of her dearest friend, the memories were too traumatic to confront. It was not until years later, on a kibbutz in Israel, that a friendship with an elderly Holocaust survivor gave Judith the strength to revisit her past — and the orphanage of her broken childhood.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼").
